Kamara Thomas is a songspeller and musical storyteller based in Durham, NC.  She performs regularly with her band The Nightdrivers.  Her songs have been described as "channeling dusty Americana and rootsy folk that spin hazy narrative paeans to America's epic landscape and mythic past."  In her musical storytelling works, Kamara explores the mythological assumptions underlying American belief systems and then creates musical rituals that re-invent and embed life-affirming symbols.  In 2015 Kamara was a featured artist for Lincoln Center Education's repertory season, presenting songs from Tularosa, a theatre work in development about the American zeitgeist set against the mythology of the Wild West.  Also in development is Bulgaria, a musical fairy tale about feminine creative experience based on the myths of Persephone and Orpheus/Eurydice in the underworld.
